Welcome to the first issue of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, a monthly collection of blog posts submitted by some of the organizing consultants who enjoy reading Your Organizing Business. Please visit their blogs, read their posts, and leave a comment or two. It’s an awesome way to learn something new and grow your network at the same time!

One of my favorite organizing topics is Technology, so I was very interested in Krista Colvin‘s review of the ScanSnap scanner. Krista says that it’s “easy to take with you when you go see clients,” and you can read all about it in ScanSnap me Baby!

Also in the Technology category, Lauren Halagarda has posted some great instructional videos that will benefit anyone who answers “yes” to the question Got PC Clutter? She tells us that “While the post is from 8/08, I still find it quite relevant. I find most of my clients don’t use a search engine or even really understand its value. This gives them the opportunity to read about them and see them in action.” (Lauren’s post is no longer online.)

Amy Tokos notes that “It is travel season for families. Here are a few tips to help with the packing and planning. Enjoy!” Read Amy’s advice in Organized Packing for a Family Vacation (also no longer online).

If your clients’ travel plans (or your own) involve a road trip, be sure to check out Julie Bestry‘s trunkload of resources for Organizing Your Car Maintenance Records.

Lelah Baker-Rabe shares tips on another theme that’s especially important this time of year, Preparing for an emergency.

On a related note, Jodi Granok provides some valuable Emergency Information Resources (no longer online).

Before closing, we’ll take a look at time management, as Janice Russell explains the benefits of timing activities in “hosed in three minutes” (no longer online).

Alex Fayle says that “While often people suggest focusing on only a few tasks is the best way to get things done, I do much better working on a lot of projects a little at a time.” Learn more about his strategy in Productivity Marathons: Dealing with Too Long To-Do Lists.

That wraps up this month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival; I hope you enjoyed it!

We’ll do it again next month, so don’t forget to submit your post and join the party! Be sure to come back on July 10th for the next edition.

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
